What this book is all about?
As the name itself depicts, this book is about Job-career. Every professional either wants to do a job or his / her own business. But being a fresher, he/she is not having any experience of both. And along with experience business also needs capital which is lacking with more than 90% of the newly qualified professionals.
Here, the role of this book comes into the picture. This book guides you on how you can start your career from scratch to be a successful top-level executive of a reputed corporate and how you can exit from a job by transforming yourself into a successful entrepreneur.
The biggest irony in the job-career is that first, you face a great struggle in entering it, and then you face huge difficulty in coming out of it. Everybody wants to come out of a job to do his / her own business but the main hurdle is an opportunity cost in the form of salary. You are right, you can’t afford to take that burden. And because of this you always keep thinking to leave a job one day and do your business but actually that day never comes. So, this book helps you to come out of a job in a systematic way without taking the stress of opportunity cost i.e. salary.
The main purpose of writing this book is two-fold:
The first purpose to write this book is to guide professionals on how to move in their job career from the very first day of qualification to the day of exit/retirement so that they can achieve both deserved salary and designation successfully.
The second purpose to write this book is to guide professionals on how they should transform themselves from an employee to an entrepreneur while doing their job.
This book is a step by step guide on:
How to write a resume or cover letter?
How to search a job?
How to face an interview?
How to handle corporate politics?
How to land, learn, grow, and develop yourself in a job?
How to exit from a job as an entrepreneur?
And this guidance is provided in a very simple language using stories, quotes, cartoons and images. You will feel connected with the book while reading.
